House in Okurayama

This house stands on the hill. It is facing two roads on the south north side in the site, which has an irregular shape. I feel there is no frontality in this site where we can get an access to the station in the north side and a car in the south side. In addition, the site offers a comfortable distance from surroundings that distribute the small colonnade of cherry blossoms and a line of green way on the two directions, southeast side across the roads.

The house is structured with two steel pillars, and a space under the second floor that works as big eaves establishes the extended path of two roads as well as gradually brings visitors into the house. A nice and quiet hall is situated at a mortar-shaped opening at the back and all interior space radiate from there.
